The Purple Flare 2.0 Data Cable is the perfect solution for hifi audio enthusiasts trying to accommodate DACS, especially ones that require micro-B or mini-B connectors. This purpose built USB cable consists of four silver-plated, OFC conductors encased in high performance FEP using Nordost’s innovative extrusion process.
*Availabe in Standard Type A USB 2.0 to Standard A, Standard B, Micro-B, or Mini B*
The Blue Heaven USB 2.0 Data Cable sets a new technological and performance standard when it comes to computer audio. Nordost\'s proven, proprietary FEP and Micro Mono-Filament construction delivers low dielectric loss and minimizes cable induced timing errors in critical digital signals. This cable is purpose built from four OFC conductors, optimally dimensioned for digital signal transfer.
*Available in Type A or B USB 2.0*
Improving upon Nordost’s Blue Heaven USB 2.0, the new Heimdall 2 USB 2.0 is the high-end digital cable that will deliver ones and zeroes with the efficiency and diligence necessary to maintain the correct impedance to dramatically lift your hifi system to a whole new level of performance.
*Available in Type A or B USB 2.0*
The Tyr 2 USB 2.0 Cable is guaranteed to take your computer audio system to the next level. It implements a solid core design, which is essential when working with a cable of this caliber. This essential upgrade completely eliminates the negative effects of strand interaction and skin effect. Each of the four 20 AWG, solid core conductors is then wrapped in Nordost’s proprietary Dual Mono-Filament technology before being enclosed in extruded FEP, which lowers the capacitance of the cable, both increasing signal speed and bandwidth.
The Valhalla 2 USB 2.0 is revolutionary in terms of USB cable design. For the first time, Nordost is introducing a flat, twin-axial geometry to its USB cables. This innovative layout allows the two signal wires to run parallel, compared to the standard twisted-pair configuration, shortening the signal path and drastically increasing transfer speeds. Another advantage to a twin-axial design is the ability to separate the power (positive) and ground (negative) legs of the cable, isolating them from signal and each other, minimizing the effects of harmful interference.
The Red Dawn USB Cable is the first of Nordost\'s USB options to offer USB C plug compatibility. This Cable uses silver-plated 99.9999%, OFC signal conductors, optimally designed for digital signal transfer. Each conductor is precision wound to correspond accurately with USB’s unique, hybrid twisted pair/non twisted pair geometry. The new Red Dawn cable also utilizes Nordost’s proprietary FEP Micro Mono-Filament technology, which allows it to transcend the speed and precision necessary for higher bandwidth and high speed, digital signal transmission.
The Frey 2 USB Cable is the perfect solution for hifi audio enthusiasts integrating computer audio into their sound systems when using components that require USB C connectors. This cable uses solid core, silver-plated 99.99999% OFC signal conductors. The use of solid core conductors eliminates the negative effects of strand interaction and skin effect. Each conductor is precision wound to correspond accurately with USB’s unique, hybrid twisted pair/non twisted pair geometry. The Frey 2 cable utilizes Nordost’s proprietary FEP Micro Mono-Filament technology, which lowers the capacitance of the cable, both increasing signal speed and bandwidth.
Hooking up a computer to a DAC seems is becoming an increasingly popular way to listen to music and there are many purpose built DACs for doing exactly this. There are also a lot DACs being used primarily with CD and for that matter CD players with USB inputs. So connecting a laptop up to the DAC via a USB cable is a simple way to start exploring streaming services like Spotify or Tidal.
More and more people are discovering that a computer, a USB cable and a USB DAC can be a very good way to listen to music. There’s also no getting away from the fact that USB cables are extremely cheap and in theory have no effect on the quality of the digital signal they carry. Our problem is that every time we sit down to listen, we find they do have an effect.
Epic USB bridges the performance gap that existed between the Shawline and Signature USB cables and features our unique Tuned ARAY conductor concept. It is built in a very similar manner to the Signature Super ARAY USB and while the conductors are slightly different, in just about every other respect the same design philosophy is applied.
As an increasing number of streaming audio products, applying USB A to B in their communications chain, are getting available we\'ve looked into how such signal can be influenced and how the construction of a cable could in turn be optimized to get the best result possible. The outcome is our USB Ultimate cable, available in 1.0m, 1.5m, 2.0m, 2.5m, 3.0m, 4.0m and 5.0m.
